3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Aroma is pine, resinous hops and pineapple. Appearance is a peach golden color with an inch of pillowy white head. Nice lacing patterns around the glass. Taste starts off with toasted malt and orange citrus followed by dry herbal hops, pine, caramel and biscuits. Mouthfeel is dry and a little watery with medium carbonation. It finishes crisp and tangy with a strong bitter aftertaste. Overall flavor is refreshing although quite heavy on the tangy citrus flavors and astringently bitter. Decent spring session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Aroma is full of hops (I think mostly Cascade) and cereal malt. Hazy yellow with a little bit of orange and a white, finely bubbled head. Nice bitter grassy hop bit right up front that follow all the way through the finish with some grapefruit at the end. Well balanced with the light toasted malt and a little honey sweetness in the finish. Hops are strong but not overpowering or resiny. An excellent warm weather beer with some real character!

Poured from the bomber into a glass. Seemed fitting as we have been having a really wet spring. Pours a light amber color, amd pretty clear. Decent head with lacing. Aroma is grassy and earthy. Flavour is also earthy. Mouthfeel is watery, definitely thin and finishes bitter. Overall this is not the best impression of ninkasi, hopefully their other stuff is better.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head and lacing. The aroma has some grass and pine notes with a similar flavor that leads to a slightly sweet finish over a medium body.

Bottle. A bit skunky. Thin malt sweetness with a mild bitter finish. Light citrus flavor throughout. A bit disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Safeway in Milwaukie OR. Pours an almost clear orange / amber. Mild hoppy nose with malts smoothing the initial and palate tasting....pleasant....not sure about the session part...6% is a little heavy for a full evening...but guess everyone wants on the session wagon.

very nice, crisp beer. Ninkasi rarely makes a stinker and this one is no dud. Had from 22 oz bottle.
